Summer 2019 Washington, DC Policy Scholars Program Application
The Pepperdine School of Public Policy Washington, DC Policy Scholars Program is an exclusive full-tuition scholarship, 3-unit class where accepted students will learn from top policy academics and practitioners about the role faith has played and continues to in American domestic and foreign policy.

This four-week seminar will accommodate only 20 qualified scholars, and will be hosted at Pepperdine's Washington, DC campus (a few blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro Station).

Upon completion of the program, scholars will receive an applied religion in public policy certificate of completion from the School of Public Policy, and may use the credits toward future enrollment at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy (or another academic institution).

Deadline to apply is 11:55 PM (PT) on Sunday, March 31, 2019.

Additional Information for DC Policy Scholar Applicants:
Eligible applicants include incoming undergraduate juniors and seniors, currently enrolled graduate students, and early-/mid-career individuals with at least a bachelor’s degree.

Scholars enrolled at other institutions should, for their own benefit, obtain approval from the relevant administrators to ensure that the Washington, DC Policy Scholar program course will fit into their academic program and that the credits will be transferable.

This full-tuition scholarship program will only cover the cost of tuition; cost of living or other scholarships will not be available through the School of Public Policy. This program constitutes a non-degree seeking or visiting student program, as such Pepperdine University will not process financial aid for accepted scholars. The School of Public Policy is not responsible for funding or finding housing while scholars attend the program, funding/providing/arranging transportation to and from Washington, DC, nor any other expenses related to enrollment in the DC Policy Scholars program.
